Changing application icons in the menu bar of Mac OS X

All know how to change more or less straightforward application icons in Mac OS X. However, there are some icons that we are always visible in our office and whose alteration is not so easy, the bar menus.

 

So, let’s see how to change the icons on the menu bar of Mac OS X applications resident, easily and with an example. Before we begin, we explain a little what these icons and to serve: Used to show the user applications on which residents can interact. There are residents of the system applications, including selection of Wi-Fi Airport, the administrator of battery, clock or even Spotlight. And then there are those that each user is installed, such as Evernote, Dropbox, Remote Buddy … The particularity of these icons is that they can have several states. For example, a mail notifier picture change if we mail or otherwise, or for example the implementation of Dropbox has different icons to indicate which is being updated in the cloud, for example. We can change only one of these icons, but to be consistent, we should change them all. Let’s see how.
Left Xi’an for Xiahe, via Lanzhou; a 16 hour trip involving an overnight train and a bus journey, about 100 miles SW of Lanzhou. I originally intended on coming here for the Lantern Festival, but as it is a small Tibetan town with one of the most important monasteries, the Labrang Monastery, changed it to take in the Tibetan New Year festivities. After wandering around taking all the sights during the day, and making friends and swapping email addresses with a monk who had a better mobile phone than I got, headed for the monastery on the second night. There must have been about 2,500 people crammed into a small courtyard in front of the temple. Hung back from the front with the other sightseers (6 or 7 Chinese), when the crowd started to surge forward. Obviously this is where the action was happening and so decided to join in and managed to squeeze myself to the front. I wasn’t even sure what was at the end of all this, but it seemed good fun. Once at the front saw what was happening. A line of Tibetan pilgrims was passing along the front of the temple paying their respects to each of the sculptures fronting each of the seven pillars. But between the pilgrims and us, the crowd, were the ‘enforcers’, some monks and locals there to hold back the crowd and try to organize things so that everything smoothly. As the crowd crept forward ever closer to the temple front so the ‘enforcers’ beat us back with either the sleeves of their coats or with sticks. And so we ebbed and flowed for about an hour, although time flew by, managing to avoid being hit. But only for so long though, I got whacked across my back (still sore after two days), but as everyone else was taking it all with good spirits so did I, but did it hurt. Finally after a while at the front, and convincing a monk that we were really brothers as we both had bald heads, he let me through. So there I was right at the front with the pilgrims passing by the sculptures paying my respects, even having a joke with some of the monks about my hair style, mind you I think the joke was probably on me! The sculptures resembled a 3D version of a Buddhist Thanka (religious painting) but were in fact all made from yak butter, amazing. All too quickly it was over and so was the fun. Although got a hit with a big stick, it was great fun, ebbing and flowing with the crowd and away from the tourists. Although all this fun must have an effect on my head, for as I climb the second flight of stairs to my room,I realized nothing looked familiar. Not only was I not in my hostel, but was in someones private house! Made a quick U-turn, and uttered growling apologies to the totally bemused owner as I departed. A lot of people seem to think that the hairs on my arms are fake and try to pull them off, it starting to get a little sore now. The one down side is the food, Tibetans are lovely people, but yak and noodles (fried or in a soup) is proving to be too much for me. I had six weeks of it when I was in Mongolia and it broke me then – the Gobi desert, rabid dogs and possible outbreak of plague I could handle but not the food. After a while you start to smell of yak fat, not nice. I was planning to go to Jiayuguan tomorrow, 15th, but have been invited to a birthday party so leave on 16th instead. …

Home Firefox, Mozilla Application for trying to enter the iPhone

In Mozilla seeking to enter the iPhone from a totally opposite to that taken by Opera a few weeks ago. Everyone was amazed with the acceptance of Apple’s iPhone application for this browser, but the results were not as good as should have been.

Mozilla is not going to try to publish a browser, Firefox Home publish an application that will allow you to sync all data from the desktop Firefox. From Mozilla declare that to the possibility of a full browser is rejected in App Store, either due to technical or policy of the App Store, prefer to bring the possibility for any Firefox user can access the most important data from your desktop version. The history, tabs, bookmarks will be accessible through this application and loaded by Safari. Apple tyrannical policy on occasion, can lead to nonsense like this, that the user does not have something as basic liberty (and a priori harmless) as the choice of which browser to use. But with this implementation at least, we will ensure access to quickly and easily to the data that we have been using our desktop Firefox browser. The application, which will use Firefox Sync, promises to be free but as you can see in the video there is still time for the application appear in the App Store. More Info | The Mozilla Blog

Made it to Xi’an – a cool place to hang out for a few days! and a lot warmer than Beijing. Went to the Terracotta Warriors today, 7th. Seen them before, but still impressive. Didn’t realize how much garlic they use in their cooking until I was shoehorned onto this local bus for an hour – fair took my nasal hair away.

Hope to be Xiahe for the lantern Festival on 12th. Decided to revise my path through the ‘stans, I’ll proberly make it up as I go along. Next two targets are: Urumqi because of the mummies there Kabul It’s the new Rock City

Have not been up to much in the last few days, just doing the tourist thing – Forbidden City, Tienanmen Square, Lama Monastery etc. Was waiting to sort out my visa for Kyrgyzstan before heading off to Xi’an and the journey proper, but as they were asking $165 for it to be issued in one day have decided to get it in Urumqi instead so will set off to Xi’an on Sunday, 5th. I believe it was Plato, in his book Republic, who said “a man who lives on thrash / heavy metal is only 3/4 wise”. So in an attempt to find this elusive 1/4 wiseness I went to the opera. It was really cool. They dressed up, sang, danced – didn’t understand a word of it but had a jolly good time, mind you didn’t understand Joe Green’s ‘Trollope’ but that was cool too. The last time I saw that much make-up on 40 something women was in the local wine bars, as they squeezed into clothes that resembled more of a tourniquet than high fashion. I could feel the last few days have gotten colder, but didn’t realize it had dropped to -13 degrees! Yesterday got a little dust in my eye and shed a couple of tears (manly not girlie ones). Before I could wipe them away they had frozen to my face – had visions of tearing my eyeball if I wasn’t careful.

Prince of Persia Retro on your iPhone / Touch / IPAD

One game I remember most fondly is the famous Prince of Persia original. Before giving his jump to three dimensions, the game of prince became a classic lifelike animations by combining the characters and fluidity of movement not seen in a videogame.

From today we can play the classic game Prince of Persia Retro on the iPhone / iPod Touch / IPAD, and just made its appearance in the App Store. Despite being the original adventure, graphics correspond to the second part of it, Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame. The controls leave a bit to be desired, especially taking into account that games platforms are most in need of a good control when you press the buttons and implement actions in due time. Unable to set the position of the same, which deducts points in this assessment. At least this comment is that the iPhone version, I do not know how will the user experience in an IPAD. Best of all is that, for very little money, 0.79 euros, can play a classic video game that has aged extremely well over time. And, as in the original game, we only have 1 hour to save the princess. That if we get used to the controls, which is already an adventure in itself. More info | Prince of Persia Retro

Saturday night was New Years eve and as I had nothing else to do some of my new found friends invited me out for a little fun. This year was the first time in 13 years that fireworks have been allowed for celebrations in Beijing and so tonight was going to be spectacular. The hostel where I’m staying is in the old part of town, with tight narrow lanes and so did not take long to fill up with both locals and tourists. Fireworks of all sorts – rockets, single and ribbons full of crackers and Catherine wheels and some that can be only described as bunker busters just to name a few – were being set off at random and at will by anyone who had them, including my friends and I. The noise was at times deafening and the air acrid with sulphur / gunpowder from the spent fireworks down each and every lane. Whilst we were setting some ground shakers off, with the help of a breeze block in the middle of a random lane, some locals came out of their house and offered some fireworks which resembled grenades – homemade and whose age was uncertain, but one thing was and that being that they were probably unstable. The only way to find out was to light them, and yes they were unstable. We stuck a thick cardboard tube into the breeze block and dropped a lighted grenade down and quickly backed off. Sometimes there would be a little ‘puff’ and it would shoot into the air and explode showering the area around with debris, other times they explode in the tube, but either way the noise left our ears ringing. Everyone enjoyed it, us boys because it made us feel like school kids doing something they knew to be illegal anywhere else in the world but fun, and the locals because they got a display on their doorstep. Too much though as at one stage part of the front of the house caught on fire, which was put out without much problem, we all laughed. As with all nights they come to an end, and so eventually we headed off home cold but happy.

As a side note, at the start of the nights adventure I went back into the hotel to get my camera. Reached into my bag to get it but all I could feel was something soft and squidgy. I gave it a good squeeze to try and get an idea what it was, and it felt like a sandwich! I quickly withdrew and saw that my bag was in fact the next to this one, and so quickly got my camera and left. So whoever it was that went to the Great Wall and found that their loving made sandwich had morphed into a Henry Moore sculpture it was not a miracle it was me!

It is interesting that in North America it is only after 911 tragedy, that people are realizing the importance of passports.

Your passport is the most single important document that you can own. The only one, recognizable by every country in the globe. Nowadays passport is mandatory for travel to most places even for North Americans.

If you are planning a trip or travel a lot, apply for a passport. And most importantly remember to renew it ? We have a huge number of passengers who where denied boarding because their passport was expired.

In pre-internet age, to book a trip you had to see a travel agent. And your travel agent would check your documents and would inform you if you needed a visa, or your passport was expired. Now after being hit by technology you are on your own buying your travel online !!

Even if you are using a travel agent, most of the times it’s over the phone or by e-mail. Your travel agent may not see you or your documents and may just ask if your passport is valid or if you have proper visa. I know I have a few wonderful clients, who’ve been working with for years and haven’t met them yet. I just know their voices. If I see any of them in person I won’t recognize them until they speak.

Today most travelers are very knowledgeable. But most people miss to check the expiry date of their passports. If you are traveling with two passports make sure both are valid. Having one valid passport won’t necessarily let you travel to your destination or pass through a transit point.

Sunday was spent trying to tune in my body to Beijing time, so didn’t do a lot. Went out to some bars with some mates, didn’t have much to drink but still got back to the hotel at 3.30am

Monday was spent trying to chase down a Kyrgyzstan visa, but the embassy was closed (til Wednesday I think) so just wandered around Tienanmen Square and some markets. Wasn’t really hungry, and certainly didn’t fancy skinned day old chick kebabs, neither come to mention did the baby scorpion, crickets, grubs or seahorse kebabs appeal.

Just a quick note to say that I have arrived safely in Beijing. Wasn’t all plain sailing though, problems getting through departures which meant that I was late getting on to the plane, so much so that they actually took my name off the flight. But it all ended in smiles. Haven’t done much today as when I landed at 9.30am Beijing time it would have been 1am UK time, so when I should have been looking forward to going to bed I had to start a new day! Found a nice hostel, but the taxi man tried to rip me off – buggers the lot of ’em. But the time I had a little wander around, sorted some money out, bought a couple things, got something to eat and had a nap it is now 8.10pm so will just chill out tonight. Bit nippy today -3 degrees. I’ll probabley hire out a bike tomorrow and do a bit of sightseeing. Apart from that not a lot to report. Oh, my backpack should arrive tomorrow (same thing happened last time I was here); hopefully just a day, last time was it took 5 days to arrive.

MobileRSS HD, the perfect feed reader for the IPAD

Although over time Google Reader has become the default feed reader of many people, there are still great alternatives on the market for reading feeds locally. In problem that has the IPAD is that there is still an adapted version of Google Reader so it is essential to use a good feed reader, in this case we speak of MobileRSS.

Sure the name sounds as you not long ago I showed this program for the iPhone and iPod touch. Its developers have now released an adaptation of the IPAD program and from the moment one of the best for the team. The application has nothing we have not seen in the version of the iPhone, but that it is what makes it such a good application. Repeat formula but thanks to the device now has much more helpful

As it was in a bit a limbo today with the Kyrgyzstan embassy closed decided to do the 10km trek along the Great Wall. The problem with these mountains (and indeed mountains in general) is that they go down, then go back up again!! My little legs took a beating today. It started off ok, then the fist of many climbs loomed into sight. The fist few I took in my stride – naturally being likened to a gazelle on several occasions – but then it hit me. The next climb was a particularly tough one (part of the problem is that most of the climbing steps are a foot or more tall and no more than 6 inches wide at best making some climbs almost sheer). About half way up my heart was pounding so much I couldn’t quite believe how my rib cage kept it contained, every sinew and muscle fibre in my calfs, thighs and lower back were screaming for more oxygen and that if they were anymore taut they would snap. With 20 yards to go my head was pounding, but I decided to go through the pain barrier, it was only a few more feet to what esle can go wrong. As soon as I thought this, some mucus from a recent chest infection came lose and felt as if it was rattling around my chest, leading to a rasping croaky breath. If I started to cough now it would set off a chain reaction and I would be coughing for the next ten minutes, but if I stopped for a rest I knew that it worse trying to restart the climb. So with slow, deliberate steps I inched my way upwards – with each step cursing the day I started smoking! But with all things they come to an end and so did this climb. I sat down with such a thump I was convinced by petite buttocks would be bruised black and blue, just have to make such no one sees them to avoid any awkward questions! The hardest thing while resting was that I would have to repeat this over again before the the 10km’s were up. It was a hard hike, but glad I did it. It is by doing this that just for a few seconds you can appreciate the problems faced by the engineers, builders and soldiers that created and manned the wall. Now I am so tired; I ache all over and want to sleep for three days to recharge, ooohhh can you feel my pain?
